We’re not sure if Antonio Gates is going to play this week, but the Chargers still need a lot of help at receiver.
Vincent Jackson is four games away from helping, and usual starters Malcom Floyd and Legedu Naanee both will not suit up for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
That leaves Patrick Crayton, Buster Davis, and rookie Seji Ajirotutu, who was activated off the team’s practice squad Saturday to help out. To make room on the roster, the team placed linebacker Kion Wilson on injured reserve.
Philip Rivers is going to have to play his very best Sunday to win with this group.
